Hello all,
I'm desperately trying to buy a new iphone outright, either a 6 or a 6S (the normal size not the plus). Thing is I really want a 64Gb.

I teach fitness classes so have heaps of music and hour long videos that I would really like to be on my phone as you never know when you might need it, and I run out of room on a 32gb.

I really don't need a 128gb though, and don't want to pay out for one really.

Ideally I'd love a rose gold 6S in 64gb, but otherwise any 64gb in a 6 or a 6S.

Has anyone seen any? I'm seeing mostly 32gb or 128gb, or its over 700, crazy when I could get a 128gb from Apple itself for 599 (more than I really wanted to spend), a 32gb is 499 but too small :(

Try giff gaff? Or look at a refurb but one from a 'reputable' dealer - Currys, Argos etc. My friend has an IT business and part of that is repairing iphones/screens etc. He says he gets no end of dodgy phones in from people who have bought them off ebay sellers/random mobile phone repairers etc, and he advised me against these. I have also read stories about people buying iphones, taking them to the Apple store and them telling them it's not a legitimate phone as they don't recognise the serial number (I have no idea how this could happen?)....

I've heard good things about CeX but then it can depend on the store you buy from as some are franchise - the main, CeX stores are meant to be OK.

I'm still looking for a refurb for my DD1 for Xmas and same as you, won't touch a 16gb (32 gb would be OK but there are hardly any around now - in fact I'm sure iphone 6 etc don't come in that size). I was initially going to go for a 5S but I'm thinking about it now and reconsidering. I have the SE 64gb which is nice, but don't know if I can justify buying my 11 year old the same (expensive!) phone as myself - was actually starting to think about changing mine and giving her my SE as it's only a few months old!

I feel your pain - it's a case of looking and looking. I was also wondering if there'll be any deals on Black Friday/Cyber Monday so not sure if it's worth hanging on.

Thanks, I was recommended Gifgaff, but they don't have any 64's in stock, if they did, I think I'd just go for it.
I am always a bit wary of reburbs, as they say condition good etc, don't know how much they have been used.
Will have a look at CeX though, thanks :)

New 6s is only available in either 32gb or 128gb. Apple aren't offering the 64gb in the 6s new. As someone else said a refurbished or secondhand one, or possibly some old stock if you're lucky.

I bought a 32gb 6s on Sunday from the apple store and the lad who served me said that they had stopped the 64gb 6s when they launched the iphone 7.

What about eBay? I got a 64gb 6S Plus for 460 and it's in perfect condition. Loving not being reminded everyday that my storage is full!

This makes sense as I am struggling to find one, it's very annoying though, I literally want something in between those sizes typically!

I have found one on eBay but I'm a little worried about the lack of comeback if it isn't as listed. I feel like I'll either get a massive bargain or regret my purchase very much.
Good to hear you had a good experience though, maybe I'll stick a cheeky bid on! 😊

If the storage is the most important thing for your work/music get an iPod instead 279 for the 64gb and 379 for the 128gb.

I have iPods, but just like everything to be in one place, so really looking for a phone, but thanks 😊

What about the refurbed section on apples website??
Also check cex as someone's mentioned, I think o2 do the refurbished models too.

Apple don't do refurb phones - not sure if they ever have. They do refurb everything else though!

As long as you use paypal your protected if the phone wasn't as described.

A lot of the time now when you sell a iphone or ipad paypal won't release the funds to the seller till 21 days has passed or the seller can prove the phone has been delivered and they buyer left feedback..

And this is incase the buyer has a issue and want's a refund.

I sold a ipad on there recently mint condition and had to wait 10 days to get my money.
